CCEA Chief Executive congratulates Northern Ireland’s GCE/A level students
Commenting on this summer’s GCE results, Justin Edwards, Chief Executive of the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) said:
“Congratulations to all those receiving their A Level results this morning. The results are a testament to the hard work and dedication shown by students over the past two years.
Northern Ireland students continue to perform well, with increases across all grades. There was a slight increase in those receiving the A* Grade this year.
Mathematics remains the most popular A level, with 1 in 10 students studying the subject. The proportion of students taking STEM subjects and Languages has decreased slightly, however STEM subjects continue to account for over one-third of A level entries in NI.
Once again students in Northern Ireland have performed well. We are delighted for the students and all those that helped them achieve their results.”
